New Orleans has the second highest US homeless and poverty rates in cities over 10,000 population. Income inequality is the highest in America.

The city murder rate is nearly two and a half times the national average. It also has one of the nation's highest crime rates. It ranks 11 on a scale of one to 100 (the safest).

Police abuse is notorious. Poor Blacks are most vulnerable. Justice Department data includes scathing findings.

Seven years post-Katrina, "35,700 abandoned or blighted homes and empty lots" remain. They represent 21% of residential housing.

A Princeton University study found many low income mothers still suffered post-traumatic stress systems in summer 2010.

Fewer bus routes now exist. Half of all Black households are "asset poor." They haven't enough savings to survive three months without income.

Around 65% of Black children are poor. Public school enrollment is way down. Charter school figures are the nation's highest.

Three years post-Katrina, Quigley said displaced residents got no rental financial aid. Rental homes weren't repaired. Unaffordable housing rose to 46%.
